PIMS-SFU Applied & Computational Math Seminar: Laura Thesing

This talk will focus on two topics in the foundations of neural networks: computability and false structures. In the first part I will recall briefly the concept of recursive functions and then discuss the gap between existence results, the...

SFU Theory Seminar: Vaishak Belle

We consider the problem of answering queries about formulas of first-order logic based on background knowledge partially represented explicitly as other formulas, and partially represented as examples independently drawn from a fixed probability...

SFU Discrete Math Seminar: Joris van der Hoeven

In this first talk out of two, I will review various well-known algorithms for integer multiplication, such as schoolbook multiplication, Karatsuba multiplication, FFT multiplication, and the Schoenhage-Strassen algorithm. The talk will also be an...

PIMS - SFU Distinguished Discrete Math talk: Joris van der Hoeven

This is the second of a two-part talk. In talk one, I will review various well-known algorithms for integer multiplication, such as schoolbook multiplication, Karatsuba multiplication, FFT multiplication, and the Schoenhage-Strassen algorithm. The...

PIMS - SFU Distinguished Lecture in Applied & Computational Mathematics: Anita Layton

Computational modelling can be used to reveal insights into the mechanisms of new drugs and to develop new diagnostic tools. Here I will discuss three major diseases: diabetes, hypertension, and autism. I will talk about how we construct models to...

SFU Discrete Math Seminar: Mehdi Salimi (RESCHEDULED)

What is a game? Mathematically speaking, a game has players, strategies and scores to explain why the players win or lose. Games which are modelled with differential equations are called differential games. Common examples are pursuit-evasion games...

PIMS-SFU Applied & Computational Math Seminar: Dr. Brian R. Wetton

Results on a two way convection-diffusion problem; an asymptotic error analysis on a piece-wise uniform grid; and a framework for understanding quadrature errors in Finite Element Methods are presented. These results were never published, although I...

SFU Theory seminar: TomÃ¡Å¡ MasaÅ™Ãk

The celebrated ErdÅ‘s-PÃ³sa theorem states that every undirected graph that does not admit a family of k vertex-disjoint cycles contains a feedback vertex set (a set of vertices hitting all cycles in the graph) of size O(k log k). After being known for...

SFU Discrete Math Seminar: David R. Wood

The dimension of a poset P is the minimum number of total orders whose intersection is P. We prove that the dimension of every poset whose comparability graph has maximum degree $\Delta$ is at most $\Delta log^{1+o(1)} \Delta$. This result improves...

Scientific, Distinguished Lecture

SFU Theory Seminar: Jason Schoeters

The talk starts with a short survey on a mathematical game known as Racetrack, in which a vehicle moves in discrete rounds and can slightly modify its movement vector every round. The goal is to minimize the amount of rounds needed to attain some...
